Th Lord is a personal God and there are some ministries for which He has no deputies because He wants to do them Himself. He is the One who cares for His people.

Illustration.

I remember coming home the first time from university. My mother came up as I was ready to go to bed and asked :

Son, are you warm enough? Do you want another blanket?

Now I was grown up! I knew where the blankets were, and she knew that I knew where they were! But it was personal care and she was not too keen to give that job up!

God is like that! he doesn’t even ask angels or archangels or cherubim to take over!

"The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms;..."

Those everlasting arms mean that you will never be in any situation, child of God, where the Lord isn’t available to you. No matter what your experience may be, however dark or deep, always, for the Christian, underneath are the everlasting arms. How safe. How blessed. How comforting.
